Modeling and monitoring legacy and emerging PFAS pollution at a catchment scale: A Phoenix Webinar

March 3, 2021

The LIFE project PHOENIX: Perfluorinated compounds HOlistic ENvironmental Interistitutional eXperience (LIFE16 ENV/IT/000488), co-funded by the EU commission and coordinated by Regione Veneto, aims to build a management framework to front the serious event of pollution from PMOC, especially from PFAS (for more information, see The LIFE PHOENIX project proposed some management and mitigation solutions for this problem which will be presented in a series of short webinars each of them focused on a specific topic or approach. During this half-day webinar, we would like also to share experiences with experts in the field or with experts from other countries where similar situations are present.
